Kathryn Magendie will celebrate the release of her new novel, Sweetie, at Blue Ridge Books at 4 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 13. To add to the celebration, Kathryn’s husband, Roger, will be serving his home cooked jambalaya. The food is free, but if you wish to make a donation, all the money received will go to the Share the Warmth fund through Mountain Projects.
Sweetie is Kat Magendie’s third novel. Her first two books, Tender Graces and Secret Graces, tell the story of Virginia Kate Carey from West Virginia. A third book in this trilogy is planned. Magendie’s books have been praised by the Asheville Citizen-Times, the Baton Rouge Advocate, by bestselling author Wayne Caldwell, and by respected reviewers including Story Circle and the Midwest Book Review.
